Dear Friends of Chaska Valley Family Theatre,
CVFT is having a birthday! This season, we’re celebrating our 20th anniversary of bringing affordable, high-quality, family-friendly, community theater to our region. We think it’s time for everyone who has contributed to our success to step back for a moment and take pride in what we have accomplished together.
During these first 20 years at Chaska Valley Family Theatre, we’ve held over 400 performances of over 50 different productions, playing to a total audience of nearly 100,000 patrons. For each of those productions, we typically have in excess of 100 people participating in some capacity, whether it be on stage, in the orchestra, backstage, or in front of house activities. We’ve had people involved who have rediscovered their forgotten theater skills, and others who have discovered new by learning and growing through their involvement in CVFT. There are even those who started with us as children and have gone on to pursue successful careers in theater.
Success does not come easily. It takes dedication and hard work. We are deeply indebted to all those who have helped make the past 20 years possible through their time, talents, and unending dedication to our organization. We’re also thankful to our partners like District 112, our local newspapers and businesses, and other arts organizations who have nurtured us and helped us grow. We have done it together – as a true community.
We are also thankful for our donors. Without you, Chaska Valley Family Theatre would not be in the strong position we are in today. Because of our dedicated supporters, we’ve had the ability to make investments in new sound and musical equipment. We’ve been able to start new initiatives, like funding ASL-interpreted performances to expand our reach to the hearing impaired. And we’re able to hold low-cost performances for students and seniors – people who may not otherwise get the chance to experience the joy of live theater.
As we enter our 20th season, we hope we can count on your contribution to continue our record of success. We hope we can count on you to support us with a financial contribution this year. By donating online HERE, you’ll ensure that CVFT can continue to make an impact in our local arts community. Your name will appear in every program, showing others that you support the mission of Chaska Valley Family Theatre, and your donation will help ensure that we are able to continue producing quality, affordable, participatory theater for years to come.
We look forward to seeing you at the theater soon.
